Agency Information Collection Extension
The EIA has submitted an information collection request to the OMB for extension under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The information collection requests a three-year extension of Form FE-746R, ``Natural Gas Imports and Exports,'' OMB Control Number 1901-0294. The proposed collection will support DOE's Office of Fossil Energy (FE) in the collection of critical information on U.S. natural gas trade. Data collected include name of importer/exporter; country of origin/destination; international point of entry/exit; name of supplier; volume; price; transporters; U.S. geographic market(s) served; and duration of supply contract on a monthly basis. The data, published in Natural Gas Imports and Exports, are used to monitor North American gas trade, and to support various market and regulatory analyses performed by FE.
